Summer. Refreshment. Cold things.
Throw chocolate into the mix and that's pretty much a perfect match!

As any of my Aussie followers will know well, chocolate Paddle Pops were as much a part of childhood summers, as salty hair and BBQ's.
Although not having consumed one for a number of years, I remember their flavour and I feel confident that I've recreated them - better and of course, whole.
To balance the sometimes heavy and non summer-suitable creaminess, I've used a combination of milk and coconut water.
Hydrating, delicious and a great choice for those sticky summer days for big and little kids alike!
